Tobey Maguire is no longer getting massive paychecks for Sony to be Spider-man, but his next producing project may be just as profitable.
The actor is producing an alien invasion flick called 5th Wave, which is described as follows:
"When the human race is on the verge of extinction, one of the last survivors on earth, an extraordinary young woman, goes on a mission to track down her younger brother who was abducted by the extra-terrestial creatures colonizing earth. She is forced to align herself with a young man who holds a secret. Together they are they only ones to save mankind."
It's based off of a young adult novel of the same name that has yet to be released, but is a planned trilogy. It sounds like Independence Day meets Twilight, don't ya think?
We're in, as long as it doesn't turn out like the recent alien invasion flop Darkest Hour, which also revolved around young adults.
Does 5th Wave sound like a book and movie U would like to read and watch?
